Planning to refinish hardwood floors on your own? Generally this finishing is done by people who get unfinished hardwood floors for their house because finished ones are expensive. It is a new burden on the hands of the owner who plans on refinishing his floors on his own but it is rather easy work which should be done carefully. Though you can hire people to do the work for you but since you insist on learning it yourself then nobody can stop you after all it is your house and your unfinished boards.
Now if you have refurnished or designed your old or new house respectively then it would not be difficult for you to get the job done. All you have to do is follow two steps- Sanding and staining. The first one involves sanding the floor thrice and it should be done carefully to make it even flooring. Next is Staining in which you have to rub the stains in the circular motions to apply the color evenly and keep rubbing till you get the desired color for your floor. If you are not careful with your staining then you will have to start all over with sanding which makes it all the more tedious job to do. Follow these steps carefully and you will refinish hardwood floors yourself. Apart from that if you had carpeting done on these floors then it will be hard work on your part to remove the carpet first which in itself is not an easy job to do.
To perform this splendid job, you can get the machines and tools for the purpose. Either you can buy them or you can get them on rent on your local hardware store. That way your work becomes easier but includes more carefulness on your part to handle them.
